    Welcome to Android Central
    The latest official update for the phone was 4.0
    If you would like an alternative to updating to a newer version of the OS, you could look into flashing custom recoveries and ROMs
    Everything in this post is 100% accurate...I think

    It's definitely worth it, but if you can afford to get a new phone I think that would be a better route. Finding support and going through all the steps to get a newer is might not be worth the hassle if you can just get a new phone altogether

    Thanks for the reply again...... I can get a new phone but i enjoy messing around with this one right now, I would like to do all the flashing and new rom **** on this phone so I can learn b4 I go get a new phone and wind up learning on that and if I screw it up and brick the new phone I'll be so mad but if I learn on this one and mess it up while learning It will not bother me and give me a reason to get the new phone. So if you could point me in the right direction with this phone as a learning tool I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

    There are no custom roms yet available for the Kyocera hydro. I too have a rooted hydro C5170.
    Have researched awhile and so far this device has no compatible rom to flash according to everything I've seen.
